Sunday Night Football open thread: Packers at Patriots

This could be the last time Aaron Rodgers and Tom Brady face off.

What better way to cap off a day where the Detroit Lions pooped the bed than to watch Aaron Rodgers in primetime, am I right?

If you can hold down the vomit long enough, Sunday night should actually be quite a game to behold. Two of the sport’s best quarterbacks duoing in a game televised nationally. This could be the very last time we ever seen Aaron Rodgers and Tom Brady face off, unless there’s a Super Bowl waiting for both franchises in the near future.

Okay, I’m definitely going to throw up now.

Anyways, the Packers need a win to keep pace with the Bears and Vikings—both winners in Week 9—while the Patriots have already clinched the AFC East*.

*Not technically true at all, but let’s be honest. The 5-4 Dolphins aren’t catching the Patriots and everyone else in the division has already lost six games. The Patriots are in.

There will be no Gronk, but a good time will be had by all. Here’s how to watch:
